No problem. It is to cover the cost of the new monitoring MPs. Good things do not come cheap.

This buggers are hell bent only in increasing and adding more burdens to the public. These parasites get all free therefore they are just imposing all levies to the general public. What is the big idea of having a govt if the only thing they could do is to dump everything on its people's head.

The new pricing strategy is a complete flop, the government has not taken into consideration the prices of other services or goods that increase with fuel prices. Even if the fuel prices drop, the prices of these products or services would remain the same and will keep on increasing.

This is the most capable and successful government to rob the state coffer and pass the burden to the fellow citizens and stay calm. MR robbed (still to prove) but at least gave some thing back to the country like the high way, clean colombo, a sea port (for the current gov to sell)... these guy only tax, tax, tax, tax and then increase increase increase....by the time his excellency wake up read the newspaper srilanka would become like Zimbabwe.

Why on earth did you reduce it in 2015 in the first place? Even though it was way high people were used to it.
